Dr. Mohammad Rawashdeh


Associate Professor – Medical Imaging Sciences
BSc. MIS – Program Director

Dr. Mohammad Rawashdeh joined as Associate Professor in Department of Medical Imaging Sciences, College of Health Sciences in January 2022. He was an Associate Professor at Jordan University of Science and Technology since 2020 before joining GMU. He worked as lecturer at the University of Sydney in 2013. He was the Chairman of the Allied Medical Sciences department at Jordan University of Science and Technology 2017-2021.

Dr. Rawashed current research focuses on perceptions of Medical Imaging, Receiver Operating Characteristic analysis of performance, human performance. He had published more than 51 peer-reviewed articles in the field of medical imaging. He had presented at the national and international imaging meetings including the annual meetings of the Radiological Society of North America and at the Australian Institute of Radiography and Sydney Cancer Conferences. The outcomes his work have improved clinical practice in medical imaging, impacted upon national guidelines, and informed international reports.
